The Black Cat Comics owner tells you what’s hot.
Yes, it actually came out last week. However I am mentioning it now so that you will not forget to buy Hellboy: The Crooked Man and Others when you go to the comic book store today. The bulk of this book is a reprint of the three issue mini-series, The Crooked Man, written by Hellboy-creator […]
I tend to gush when I post. I find that if I care about something enough to tell others, I’m only able to wax long about it’s many virtues. The Abominable Charles Christopher deserves no different, but I will force myself to be brief.
I sauntered into the comic book story this past week. My dealer had already placed my habit (a stack of six or seven comic books) on the counter. After the usual pleasantries, I asked him: “So, are you reading Chew?” “Yeah, of course. Aren’t you?”
Yes, Mr. Garth Ennis is up to it again. Or is it his partner in crime, Derick Robertson? In the end, it doesn’t really matter, does it? Someone, probably on a conservative, faux-news cable network, is going to get a hold of this and run with it.
Over at Comic Book Resources Greg Hatcher has written an article called “Friday in the Bank Vault.” However, it should really be titled “What is the Most Valuable Comic I Own.” He writes about comics he owns, some of them worth 20, 30, and even 88 dollars! Whoop-dee. No offense to Mr. Hatcher but I […]
The popular indie is back. Tim Seely has moved his creation to Image after refusing to deal with Devil’s Due Comics any longer. This is the first issue of four in a short mini-series. Are Hack/Slash fans going to be satisfied?
I have been waiting for this–yeah, I think it is late. Solomon Kane is Robert E. Howard’s second most famous creation, after Conan. Instead of a barbarian, Solomon Kane is an puritanical Englishman from 300 years ago whose soul purpose, it seems, is to hunt evil. I did not know this when I read the […]
As The Goon is one of my favorite comic books, I looked forward to this comic book, Buzzard, with mixed feelings. I was unsure if Buzzard, who always seemed to be more of a serious character in The Goon, could carry his own book in writer/artist Eric Powell’s unique style. In addition, I was worried […]
Last year, Frank Miller announced that he was doing a prequel to 300. The prequel will focus on Xerxes, the king who would be a god. It is supposed to be a six issue mini-series that covers the life of the villain from 300. Can’t wait until next year? Miller and Dark Horse Comics have […]
X-men Forever will have its first birthday next week and will be celebrating by issuing the first issue of the second volume. This is the comic book where Chris Claremont (the first regular writer of the “new” X-Men back in 1975 and the man primarily responsible for the X-Men’s success) transports readers back to 1991 […]
It is not often I make a mistake of this magnitude. I thought that I a huge comic book junkie and enthusiastic n00b to the world of Firefly/Serenity would be perfect to read Dark Horse Comics latest published outing into Josh Whedon’s future. This one is written by Patton Oswalt (yes, he must be a […]
One collected edition of note is I Kill Giants by Joe Kelly and JM Ken Niimura. In 2008, it was awarded “Best Indy Book of 2008” by IGN. Dan Kois (New York Magazine) put it in his top ten comics list for 2009. The Young Adult Library Services Association named it one of 2010’s “top […]
Originally, I wasn’t going to review Ultimate Iron Man: Armor Wars. The hardcover collected edition of the four issue mini-series came out in the middle of April. I wasn’t going to review it because after reading it, Armor Wars slipped from my mind fairly quickly. What’s that you say? A book by Warren Ellis did […]
